Not long after the peaceful transfer of power was made official, President Trump quickly set to work fulfilling many of his campaign promises to the American people. His first act ordered the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, the crumbling health care program designed in large part as a bailout of the health insurance industry.
President Trump also shut down the Globalist TPP free trade agreement, announcing the US’s withdrawal from the treaty and sealing its fate. He repeated his intention to renegotiate NAFTA in a manner that would put American workers first, and announced intentions to cut business regulations, notably environmental regulations, by up to 75%. The President hopes that these policies, along with slashing corporate tax rates, will attract industrial capitalist and jobs back to the US.
Meetings were also held with the heads of Ford, GM, and Fiat/Chrysler as well as Dell, Whirlpool, Johnson & Johnson, Lockheed Martin, Arconic, Dow Chemical, US Steel, Tesla, Under Armour, International Paper, and Corning to discuss the repatriation of manufacturing jobs. This was the first of a series of quarterly meetings designed to provide President Trump with constructive feedback on restoring America’s manufacturing base.
The first week of the Trump administration looks like a victory for the everyday, working class people, but Corporate Democrats like Cory Booker, the dishonest media, the out of touch, irrelevant celebrities, and the bubble-dwelling intelligentsia are still protesting the scourge of this evil Donald Trump. Despite the successes, there have been a few difficulties as well. Mexico’s President Enrique Pena Nieto cancelled his meeting after flatly refusing to pay for the proposed southern border wall. The administration remains adamant about building the wall, and will use tariffs on Mexico to reimburse the taxpayer for footing the bill. Alex Jones also hinted at the possibility of taxing money transfers going from the US to Mexico to recoup payment for the wall.
As for the Supreme Court, the President announced he will be picking his nominee this Wednesday. He also attacked Democrats who have been delaying his cabinet nominations, labeling them, as I have labeled them, obstructionists.
On the matter of the popular vote results and allegations of massive voter fraud, President Trump announced plans to open a full investigation via the Department of Justice. I have suspected that the Corporate wing of the Democrat Party, along with their Globalist friends, may have artificially inflated Hillary Clinton’s vote tally through polling sites in deeply blue states like California. After losing literally every house of government, the Globalists began taking measures to save face. Denying President Trump the popular vote and astroturfing an anti-Trump movement is the start of another soft-power, cultural offensive and more social conditioning. You know, the usual skullduggery.
In the fallout of 2016, it’s become clear to all that the old paradigm of centralization, bureaucracy, social justice and political correctness is being thoroughly rejected by the people of Western culture. This shift in attitudes was evidenced at the World Economic Forum held in Davos, Switzerland, where job-killing technologies like autonomous vehicles were on display, and stuffy eggheads further engrossed themselves in their concept of the welfare state by debating Universal Basic Income.
“The essence of the story is that the elites now want to address some of the shortcomings that have led to a rise in populism. I’m sure their desires are sincere.
“But the truth is that such discussions and calls to action may be too little, too late. Rightly or wrongly, the image of the Davos meeting is etched in the global consciousness as a symbol of elitism — as a go-to meeting for billionaires and top policy makers.
“If two years ago it was cool to want to be part of the elite, and it probably was, then now it has become a throwback to a bygone age as distant as top hats, and horse-drawn carriages.”
The rise of populism and the reality of the Trump presidency means that America is now off the Globalist track, and not interested in what’s going at Davos.
Filling this vacuum left by America is China, with Xi Jinping being the first Chinese president to attend the forum. This is not at all surprising as the Chinese have always had the most to gain from that old paradigm of debt-financing, free trade and outsourcing.
“As a latecomer to modern industrialisation and its resurgence as an economic superpower, China has certainly benefited from the process of globalisation, particularly following its accession to the World Trade Organisation. China’s recent emergence as a leading global investor suggests that it is ready to help other countries [in] harnessing globalisation and free trade for their economic and social development.
“However, the current global economic climate is full of anxiety and stress, as most countries struggle to find their way out of slow growth or recession.”
Taking over on the Globalization project will add yet another huge geopolitical task onto China’s already massive global agenda. The Chinese are currently financing giant infrastructure plans in Africa and along the New Silk Road, attempting a take over of the South China Sea and its trade routes, and are planning to construct an international electrical grid covering the entire Pacific Rim. I’m not at all surprised that Putin and the Russians are getting a little nervous over the PRC’s ambitions and hedging their bets appropriately.
But it is the Globalists such as the Clintons, Jean-Claude Juncker, and Angela Merkel who have the worst possible outlook in 2017. There has been a palpable and international groundswell of resistance specifically to billionaire arch-Progressive George Soros and his Open Society NGO’s coming from Europe.
Without corrupt politicians in position to do his bidding, Soros is forced underground and NGO’s become his primary tools for affecting political and social action (usually through mass media). If this anti-Soros sentiment spreads throughout Europe, the Globalists will have lost a big financier and partner in their fight to maintain control over Europe.
To be honest, I wonder how long Soros has left until he’s cast out of the cabal and put on the menu. Soros succeeded in the liberalization of Russia and the plundering of assets under Yeltsin, but his victories seemed to have ended there. He missed Putin’s invasion of South Ossetia in 2008, and Russia’s breakout from the Globalist hegemony. It was Soros’ Euromaidan faction that provoked Putin’s invasion of the Ukraine, and Soros’ recommendation of economic sanctions that failed to remove Russian troops. One could make a very convincing argument that George Soros was one of the primary actors at the center of the Globalist defeat in 2016.
